What clients may notice about my therapeutic style:

My thoughts are often informed by the brief psychodynamic model of therapy, using the client’s relational and experiential history to help the client explore and better understand any current dilemmas or life challenges that they may be facing. Although my thoughts are frequently shaped by this model, within the session I employ a more interactive, motivational, and engaging approach, using cognitive-behavioral and positive psychology tools to help my clients to reach their therapeutic goals. I like to think of my role in the therapy session as being someone in the passenger seat periodically helping to navigate during the journey, and the client, with all of their knowledge of themselves and desire for change, as the driver who will ultimately be the one to travel the road ahead.

When I’m not at work...

I enjoy sitting on my deck swing, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
